Pace Gallery, New York Acquired from the above by the present owner
"The hearts were a prime object. Yes, the shape! It means a lot of things. It doesn't just mean love, it's anatomical, it's all kinds of things. It refers to all kinds of anatomy, too. But it also was a way for me to hang paintings onto something."
This work is in very good condition overall. The canvas is unlined. The surface texture and pigment variations are consistent with the artist's choice of medium and working method. Only visible under very close inspection, there are a few scattered, unobtrusive pinpoint losses to the surface and a few, very minor unobtrusive surface accretions. Under Ultraviolet light inspection, there is no evidence of restoration. Unframed.
